There has never been a more exciting time than now to join the water industry. The government’s 3 Waters Reform programme aims to achieve an improved water services system that delivers safe and sustainable water for everyone in Aotearoa through the establishment of four publicly-owned water entities. This means that in June 2024 the water services currently managed by Napier City Council, and Council employees who work primarily in water services, will transfer to the new entity. This excludes senior managers. Please be aware that the position being advertised may transfer from Napier City Council to the new water entity from June 2024.
